. there is an indication that they may not be able tole control the reactor in the long term. right now, they are using stop-gap measures, desperate measures to keep what's left of the core that hasn't melted from melting. but i think the authorities have no confidence and they are not expecting to keep it up for the weeks or months that may be necessary to prevent a further core melt. >> we heard an hour ago a japanese nuclear safety official said the water inside the waste storage pool at the plant may be boiling. what's the significance of that? are we facing the potential of yet another explosion? >> well, earlier today there was an explosion at the spent fuel pool of the number 4 reactor. it had been shut down but all the fuel from the core was put in the spent fuel pool, so it was hot. that experienced a hydrogen explosion indicating there was fuel damage. certainly if there is boiling water in a pool that means the water level covering the spentle fuel could decrease and we could be faced with yet another episode of fuel degradation, hydrogen explosion. these pools are not within the leak tight
